Sugar, sick and friends

Whitaker and his sweet tooth.  The stories could really be endless... Endless requests, endless caving in, endless sugar highs and lows and cavities!  Bad bad mommy Whitaker has.  Until, her eldest daughter reminded her that she had a brilliant idea when it came to TV.  A long time ago, I used TV tokens to give the kids some moderated TV Time.  Why not create a Sugar Token.  BRILLIANT!  It's working beautifully. Altho, as soon as he wakes up, he goes and grab's his first token and cashes it in.  5 or 6 times he has had ice cream for breakfast.  He usually cashes one in at lunch and has to suffer the rest of the day since they are spent.  Good good mommy and big sister. ;-)

Here is the little guy after his first 45 minute soccer practice. ;-)  Probably needs sugar.

Poor buddy got a terrible virus where he couldn't eat, threw up and had a very severe headache.  I finally made the call late at night, because my savior Becky came over and took Whitaker for me.  It ended up being a good call, he was sick.  He got better quickly after this....

The girls and I got invited to have one last hurrah before school started.  I had fun hanging out at our friend's lake house, the girls had a ball with their friends!
